Forzani ties up with Canadian Junior Golf Association
Mar '10
The Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) is pleased to announce a three year partnership with The Forzani Group Ltd. (TSX:FGL), Canada's largest retailer of sporting goods, as an Official Partner of the CJGA.

Nevada Bob's, a corporate banner of the Forzani Group Ltd., will become an Official Sponsor of the Clinics for Kids Program as well as the Official Sports Retailer of the CJGA. The new partnership will see the expansion of the Clinics for Kids Program, a program that will be offered on a national scale. The clinics will take place at every CJGA Junior Linkster and Junior Tour event across Canada, a number that exceeds 80 events in 2010. The clinics will be free of charge to all junior aged golfers covering all facets of the game and introducing the game to juniors across Canada.

"We're committed to getting and keeping more Canadians moving, and we know that this starts at the grassroots level. Getting kids involved with golf at either a recreational or competitive level is a surefire way to influence them toward adopting an active lifestyle forever," says Mark Hindman, Vice President of Marketing at The Forzani Group Ltd.

The partnership builds on the CJGA's goal of giving junior golfers in Canada an opportunity to develop their professional skills, while honouring The Forzani Group Ltd.'s mandate to involve more Canadians in an active lifestyle.

"We are thrilled to have The Forzani Group Ltd. and more notably Nevada Bob's as an Official Partner of the CJGA" said Earl Fritz, Executive Director of the CJGA. "With their support, the CJGA is enabled to expand its programs on a national scale which are designed to create interest in and awareness for the game of golf at the introductory, development stages."
